NEW YORK - In a B-plus year for music, the Grammy voters did a C-minus job of reflecting that energy and passion in nominations announced yesterday. In the top three categories alone, the reaction to the nominees is likely to range from hurrah to "huh?" The hurrahs will be for the choices in album of the year, the most prestigious of the 104 categories. In that race, three far different but immensely rewarding albums will vie for final honors: inspirational rocker Bruce Springsteen's The Rising, rap provocateur Eminem's The Eminem Show and classy pop vocalist Norah Jones' Come Away With Me. Several other strong candidates would have given us a more memorable field, including Beck's tender Sea Change and Wilco's eloquent Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

Something I wish I could write more, but will happily do so now: It's a great weekend for Baltimore concerts. Rather than picking one concert to showcase, I'd rather highlight some of the strong options the area is offering, which includes local talent and national headliners. •••• Erykah Badu and the Cannabinoids play Rams Head Live Friday night. Badu's appeal - a keen writer's eye, hippie-wise from a full life with enough edge to keep things interesting - comes alive on stage.
